From Fortnum & Mason

First created to mark the christening of HRH Prince George of Cambridge, this very special tea is perfect for happy occasions.

The celebratory notes of muscatel from peak second flush Darjeeling are lifted with bergamot tones to create an elegant and fragrant twist on classic Earl Grey.

The Christening Blend Tea is presented in our signature eau de nil tin, and would make a lovely commemorative gift.

Tried some more of this last night. I remain unimpressed. It would have gotten a higher rating if it weren’t for the ridiculous marketing and the outrageous price. As it is, it is a pretentious blend that could have been better if it would have spent less time preening itself and more time balancing its flavours.
This tea, with a better choice of a darjeeling base, and a better price, is called “Darjeeling Earl Grey” and is sold by a company called Ronnefeldt. Buy it from them.
